I'm not a particular fan of onion soup, but my other half really is, so I decided to make this out of love, & surprise, surprise, I found this to be A GREAT TASTING SOUP! Easy to make, too! I did cut the recipe in half for just the 2 of us & was really pleased ~ Maybe it was the red wine! Anyway, I'll just keep hold of this recipe, if you don't mind! Thanks for posting it!
